PACIFIC OCEAN - The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Russell (DDG 59) conducts a cooperative deployment with the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) National Police Maritime Surveillance Division Patrol Boats FSS Palikir and FSS Micronesia in Pohnpei State, FSM, reinforcing US commitment to the safety and security of the Federated States of Micronesia. Russell, part of the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group, is on a scheduled deployment to the 7th Fleet area of operations. As the U.S. Navy's largest forward deployed fleet, with its approximate 50-70 ships and submarines, 140 aircraft, and 20,000 Sailors in the area of operations at any given time, 7th Fleet conducts forward-deployed naval operations in support of U.S. national interests throughout a free and open Indo-Pacific area of operations to foster maritime security, promote stability, and prevent conflict alongside 35 other maritime nations and partners.
